Dessert for everyone

My family and I went here for dinner and stayed for dessert. It really was the dessert that made the meal. Great service, good food, great dessert is the best way to describe it.

Life's uncertain; eat dessert first. The ice cream martinis are insane!! The rest of the menu is tasty, but know that it's just soup, salad, sandwiches. They do them all quite well. The walls/ceiling are hand painted and worth your time just to see them! Great little place.

In most contests, ice cream would win over soup - at least for me. But what I find my mouth watering over is their Dill Pickle Soup. It's really potato with heavy dill influence, but it is so very good. And great ice cream, too. Love the itty-bitty hot fudge sundaes for after a meal - the ginormous treats when... More

I am so glad that I decided to stop in here for an old-fashioned ice cream soda. Although I very rarely eat ice cream, the thought of a real ice cream soda was too enticing to pass up. For the first time ever, I tried a black cherry soda- fantastic. The Fountain offers a great selection of ice cream flavors... More

We went to a wonderful performance of Phantom of the Opera at the Fox and this was our choice for after theater dessert. The Bananas Bourbon sundae was excellent, I got a taste of my mother's almond coconut with hot fudge sundae and it was great as well. My friend's Three Coins in the Fountain (vanilla, chocolate and mint ice... More

My husband and I and another couple went yesterday for a late lunch. From the pictures it looks pretty spacious. It's not as big as it looks. We were sat in a corner with limited chair space around us. Making it hard to stay out of the cramped aisle that people tried to walk through. The lights were too dim.... More

My first brush with the Fountain was when my wife and I had one of their ice cream martini's at the Outdoor Film series at Art Hill. It was so good, I licked the glass. My wife and I have been to the restaurant a couple of times, the first time for lunch, and the second time for dessert. The... More

Very cool atmosphere, good place to bring out of towners and get dessert! The food is okay-- not bad and not excellent. Overall, I would recommend going in with the groupon. And save room for the delicious ice cream sundaes and the pickle soup is also of interest.

I must say my wife, kids, and I was pleasantly surprised about how good the food was at this restaurant. My wife had the pesto chicken sandwich with the St. louis salad. She indicated that the sandwich and salad were very good. I had the roast beef sandwich and chips which was also very good. The kids had a cheese... More
